    Good luck Cal the desmo is a pig to ride quick, you will need all the luck in the world.If all the races next year were wet races you have a possibility of a win.

    Personally you made a bad choice, hope it works out for you.

    Not a wise move this. No one seems to be able to ride it.:Unknown: .

    Hope he does well but i can't see it.

    He would have been better off to hang fire until Suzuki made its appearance in 2015. But Cal being Cal is and will be very outspoken about Yamaha performance or lack of works bike parts and the frustration with Yamaha not giving a works bike to satellite teams. personally that was his undoing!!

    Having worked with Japanese firms they dislike any sort of negativity or bad mouthing, in Japan showing displeasure is one way making a rod for your own back. Honda would have said no purely on this and not his riding abilities.

    To success in a Japanese company NEVER bad mouth the hand that feeds you.

    Don't think his bike was that much off factory to be fair,think it is more to do with Tech Three.

    If it was me i would of told Bradly Smith to hit the high road. Don't think he is up to it.

    Well Tech Three say the Honda has give all their satellite teams the same bike as the factory Repsol team.. According to Tech three they can deliver him a winning bike all they need is Yamaha to give them the know how and factory works parts .. Cal the pig the middle throwing his tantrums .:telloff:

    Yamaha has had enough of his whinging and have hung tech three out to dry out and reminded them where their loyalty lie.

    Going back into time in 2005 .. When Max Biaggi was a Honda repsol rider he whinge and moaned and bad mouthed HRC top brass at the Turkey race.. well has he ridden for any Japanese bike form again..?

    No he stuck with Aprillia and Dukes ..

    Correction he may have ridden for Suzuki in WSBK :Whistle:let me check.

    Just reading this weeks MCN and looks like Cal is in talks with Suzuki to jump ship from the donkey desmo to a better bike..

    Well it was going to happen, but cal needs to shut up and get on with it ,he doesn't half moan when he does get things right.

    Even poaching Gigi from Aprilia hasn't changed their fortunes or the bucket loads of money from the VAG group who own Ducati. They are not even that good in WSB either .time to quit really.
